Alleging that 58 wine shops have opened up in Delh ever since the AAP government came to power, Swaraj Abhiyan had demanded closure of a liquor outlet in Kotla- Mukabarpur.

Claiming that the shop was opened in Kotla-Mukabarpur despite protests from locals, Swaraj Abhiyan, an organisation led by expelled AAP leaders Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav, said if it is not shut by August 10, a movement will be launched.
